    "Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his loved ones," the statement said.

    One male suspect has also been confirmed killed by the city police.

    On Wednesday morning, a soldier guarding the National War Memorial in Ottawa was shot dead by an unidentified gunman. Shots continued to be fired later at the Canadian Parliament, which is located nearby.
